The most dramatic of the luxury hotels in Marina Bay has 32 floors of unobstructed harbor and city views, as well as sculptures by Frank Stella and prints by David Hockney and Henry Moore. All rooms are unusually large, with sofas, bathrooms whose tubs have pillows, and have large octagonal windows. The Ritz-Carlton Club, on the 32nd floor, comes with personalized concierge service. The three restaurants are Shiraishi for Japanese, the Summer Pavilion for Cantonese, and the Asian- and European-influenced Greenhouse. There's live jazz in the lobby lounge every evening.

We had an amazing corner room with incredible views of the harbor and Singapore flyer. In the morning, the sun would cast a beautiful golden lights on the buildings across the harbor. We had a suite with lots of space including a living room. DH had been there before and, when we arrived, we found a bowl of fresh exotic fruit and a "welcome back" card. That was such a great welcome after a long flight! Service was fantastic. The people at
the concierge desk were so warm I felt like they were my friends. (They also gave good advise of things to do.) The bathtub was amazing, with a big octagonal window. They provided lovely bath salts for the tub and a pillow, so it was very relaxing after a long day of walking around. We stayed on a club floor. The club lounge was wonderful - the food was great, varied (different Asian cuisines, as well as western) and different things were available throughout the day. There were a few computers available for use in the lounge area. My husband was in meetings a lot but I felt completely comfortable going to the lounge by myself. Usually, I think of hotels as just a place to sleep. In this case, being in the hotel was part of the pleasure of being in Singapore.

We have stayed here each time we have been to Singapore and it is fabulous. The service is brilliant and personal, the rooms are beautiful, as are the views of the harbour.
